Despite the fact much has been made of China’s seeming lack of care for Russia’s incursion of Ukraine, one of its top diplomats revealed the communist state’s true colors by claiming the “true danger” is the USA.
What is China’s Plan?
The current status of Moscow’s relationship with Beijing is causing a bit of a stir in the Western press.
China, for example, stunned onlookers over the weekend by refusing to vote against a draft resolution of Russia’s “violence” against Ukraine, instead deciding to abstain.
However, the gesture was purely symbolic; the motion was hopeless anyway, as Russia holds a regular seat on the board and so has the power to reject any such resolution.
The incursion of Ukraine has placed the Chinese Communist Party in a tough spot.
It would be challenging for Beijing to endorse Russia’s assistance for “separatist” moves in the Donbas without jeopardizing their long-standing policy of viciously suppressing so-called “separatist” moves in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and Tibet.

Zhao Lijian, the Communist Party’s senior “wolf warrior” mouthpiece, went on Twitter — which is outlawed in China — to slam the United States as the “true menace” to world stability, signaling China’s willingness to fight with Russia against the West after all.
“Never underestimate who the actual threat to the globe is,” Zhao tweeted beside a satirical infographic entitled, “USA Bombing List: The Democratic World Tour,” which lists military involvement and battles since WWII.
On Friday evening, the Chinese consulate in Russia republished the message, echoing the top diplomat’s stance.
China is in Dream Land
In relation to the United States, communist China and its sycophants frequently claim to be a peaceful nation.
During a nationwide address in September, Chinese dictator Xi Jinping boldly claimed “China has not and will not attack or bully others, or pursue hegemony.”

In truth, China has invaded and fought various countries throughout its history.
Even if one only considers the background of the Chinese Communist Party, which rose to power in 1949 after the US-backed down for Chiang Kai Shek’s nationalists, the country has a long history of conquering and bloodshed.
Mao Zedong’s communist armies attacked and captured East Turkestan, which was later called Xinjiang, in their first year in power.
The CCP invaded Tibet the following year, forcing the Dalai Lama to flee and form an exile administration, as well as years of violent repression of the native Buddhist populace.
Despite the fact Tibet and Xinjiang have distinct languages, religions, cultures, and ethnicities from the rest of China, the communist government refused to acknowledge their actions were invasions.
However, since gaining control of the regions, China has indeed been accused of gross human rights violations and mass slaughter, with vast numbers believed to have been interned in Xinjiang prison camps.
